After working on a few paintings from photos, I have decided to get back to painting from life. In this painting, I tried to capture the strong sunlight coming in from the window, which illuminated the still life from behind. In the end, I am fond of a few areas in the painting, but not sure it all comes together as a finished piece. The composition was a challenge, along with harmonizing the colors. A friend suggested that I add something blue, hence the little vase, which turned out to be my favorite part of the painting.Thanks - E!
Tomorrow I head outdoors again for some more plein air painting!!
